Excellent headphones

These are excellent, they blew me away. They are the best BT headphones I've ever heard, and I've heard a lot. There is no difference between BT and the wired connection when it comes to quality. Thats a good thing, since they don't come with an iPhone cord, so if you are using Apple products you pretty much *have* to use BT. They work fine on my iPhone5 and Macs.

a few things to note before buying..

l've tried everything so far to get these to work on my macbook pro, which is boot camped with a clear install of windows 8, which Sony says will make these headphones compatible with. however nothing l've tried has worked so far, even my pc, which is just windows 7 and a hp based model won't recognize this device. so that's something to consider if you are looking to buy these for a laptop or pc... you will most probably wont get a connection with the headphones.

Excellent sound quality, but wonky Mac pairing

By

from Bay Area

Extremely comfortable, solid build quality, and really excellent, balanced sound--so everything about the headphones themselves are really nice. Slightly more bass-heavy than the MDR-7506's, which I also own, but honestly I can't tell a difference other than that (although the headband and ear cups on these are softer and higher quality, and without the big cord the balance feels better). But the pairing/Bluetooth connection is a little wonky with Macs; at least once day there's an error where the connection drops out, or I have to turn them off and on a couple times to use them as my audio device. Also, once I had them paired with my computer neither of my two coworkers (also on Macs) were able to pair with their computers even after I turned my Bluetooth off. However, my Bluetooth mouse and keyboard (both Apple products) also get weird sometimes, so it may be more of an OS issue than a headphone issue. However, wanted to put this out there since these are expensive, so if a Mac is your main computer, you might want a corded model or something else.

The Bluetooth Headphones to Beat

By

from Michigan

These headphones are terrific. I've tried many others, including the gimmicky Ziks, and as far as sound quality and comfort, the 1RBTs are the head of the class. Sure, they are pricey, but you get what you pay for. I would have liked more metal in the build for the price, but the plastic seems durable enough. Most importantly, the sound is the best I've heard. They are not bass cannons, but there is plenty of clean bass that doesn't junk up the mids/highs. I'm no audiophile, but I am very particular with wireless headphone sound, and the sound even improved after a short 5hr burn in. The range was excellent on the BT, as I was able to much further than any other BT device I own. I did not notice any static or cutoffs at 10m even through several walls.

Amazing

By

from NYC

Great sound quality. No difference between wired and wireless. Would happily recommend. As mentioned in cons there is only a soft cover case and the charging wire is only about 2ft but nevertheless still very happy with this sony product. Wireless setup was very simple and easy.

Everything I wanted

By

from Seattle, WA

Full disclosure: I'm a Sony headphone fanboy. First impressions on the MDR-1RBT are great. Overall sound is good with big bass. Bluetooth pairing is fast, reliable, and has great range. They fit snugly on my head with a fair amount of inward pressure, but after wearing them for only relatively short periods they don't seem to cause any discomfort. They appear sturdy and I'm not worried about them getting a bit of abuse. Mic quality seems good. Volume controls on the headphone augments the volume setting from the paired bluetooth device which is great. I wasn't able to get them to pair with my Nokia 920 over NFC though after mainally paired the NFC works fine to power on and off the headphones so maybe just user error. Definitally the most I'v paid for a pair of headphones, but I'm still happy enough with the value.
